Aveo executive resigns after being identified as 'poo jogger'

THE man outed as Brisbane’s alleged poo jogger has resigned from his corporate role at a leading retirement village.

Andrew Douglas Macintosh, 64, was a senior manager at one of Australia’s leading retirement village operators.

As revealed by The Courier-Mail, Mr Macintosh was charged with public nuisance after allegedly defecating on a unit block pathway in Greenslopes while on his morning run.

The alleged deed was captured on camera by a fed-up resident.

Mr Macintosh was a national quality manager with Aveo and a member of Brisbane City Council’s Inclusive Board.


Mr Macintosh faced Holland Park Magistrates Court this week before his charge was downgraded to an infringment notice, resulting in a $378 fine.

This morning Aveo confirmed Mr Macintosh — a former director of the Retirement Village Association of Australia — had now resigned from the company.

“Until yesterday, Aveo Group was not aware of the charges laid against Mr Macintosh,” a company spokesman said.

“Aveo Group is distressed and disappointed at the alleged incidents concerning Mr Macintosh. He has tendered his resignation to the company today and is no longer an employee of Aveo Group.

“Aveo will continue to extend its support to Mr Macintosh for help that he may require.

His resignation came as the story went viral on social media, trending on Twitter. One user even created the Twitter handle @poojogger.

My view: It's sad that he ruined his career, because he couldn't control himself with something like that, maybe he has psychological problem, as he has paid the price with his job and reputation, for what he should have done in the privacy of his home.
